The truth is out there. And this game, based on one of the best sci-fi TV series in history,
is way, way "out there". Despite performances by original cast members David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and
a few other favourites, The X-Files puts the "normal" back into paranormal.
Collaboration with the TV show's creator, Chris Carter, ensures that the game attains the eerie visual quality of the
show, but the lack of any tension or pacing makes one wonder why the game is spread across an unusually voluminous four PlayStation
Mulder and Scully have gone missing, and as the poorly acted Craig Willmore, a local FBI agent, you must find the clues
that lead to their whereabouts. Most of the game is spent aimlessly wandering from location to location, hoping to find screen
hotspots that may possibly give players a clue as to what they are supposed to do next.
Conversations with others seem strangely stilted, and often the script offers up red herrings that will frustrate players
who try to play the game as if it were logically designed. In a number of instances, even though you know what course of action
you should take, you're forced to wait for the game to catch up with you before taking it.
